The calendar says December. The weather feels like early November. And as confusing as it is for us, imagine what it’s like for the trees!
The leaves on the ginkgo trees on Appleton and Cumberland Streets did not turn a brilliant yellow before they lost their leaves. Other trees are holding onto their leaves longer.
Casey Trees says it’s not just around here – it’s happening all over. In this blog post, Casey Trees explains how the unseasonable warmth has encouraged trees to keep their grip on their leaves.
It also notes that the warmth is not expected to stay. Indeed, forecasters are saying it will definitely feel like December for at least the next two weeks.
